Dynamo turnip is a high yielding summer crop for dairy cows. It provides large volumes of low cost quality feed with a high proportion of bulb, and good bulb keeping ability.
In trials Dynamo has shown high yield, not significantly different from the other top cultivars.
Replacing a poor performing pasture with a crop of Dynamo makes financial sense. It can provide feed for around 20 c/kg DM*.
Low cost summer feed
High bulb percentage
Summer turnips produce their yield in different ways. Dynamo produces a good level of bulb (around 48% of total yield), giving it an advantage in seasons when pest and/or leaf disease pressure are high.
